Children's Hospital Campaign

Within our reach is a hospital for our children that is among the best in the world. It is a place where medical excellence and love intersect to create miracles and healing.

Within Our Reach

We have a powerful opportunity to introduce advancements in children’s healthcare that will define this region as a nationally recognized leader in pediatric medicine. The hospital is a place where families from Pascagoula, Mississippi to Port St. Joe have access to the finest medical care possible across specialties such as prenatal and neonatal care, pediatric cancer care, pediatric internal medicine and many others.

Within Your Hands

We launched an ambitious building initiative, utilizing the most advanced technological and medical understanding to date. This hospital was designed with the help of skilled medical architects, with input from doctors, surgeons and staff as well as the children and families of our community.
